2 H8085 [H8798] Hear H2205 this, ye old men H238 [H8685] , and give ear H3427 [H8802] , all ye inhabitants H776 of the land H3117 . Hath this been in your days H518 , or even H3117 in the days H1 of your fathers?
3 H5608 [H8761] Tell H1121 ye your children H1121 of it, and let your children H1121 tell their children H1121 , and their children H312 another H1755 generation.
4 H1501 That which the palmerworm H3499 hath left H697 hath the locust H398 [H8804] eaten H697 ; and that which the locust H3499 hath left H3218 hath the cankerworm H398 [H8804] eaten H3218 ; and that which the cankerworm H3499 hath left H2625 hath the caterpiller H398 [H8804] eaten.
5 H6974 [H8685] Awake H7910 , ye drunkards H1058 [H8798] , and weep H3213 [H8685] ; and wail H8354 [H8802] , all ye drinkers H3196 of wine H6071 , because of the new wine H3772 [H8738] ; for it is cut off H6310 from your mouth.
6 H1471 For a nation H5927 [H8804] is come up H776 upon my land H6099 , strong H4557 , and without number H8127 , whose teeth H8127 are the teeth H738 of a lion H4973 , and he hath the cheek teeth H3833 of a great lion.
7 H7760 [H8804] He hath laid H1612 my vine H8047 waste H7111 , and barked H8384 my fig tree H2834 [H8800] : he hath stripped it H2834 [H8804] bare H7993 [H8689] , and cast it away H8299 ; its branches H3835 [H8689] are made white.
8 H421 [H8798] Lament H1330 like a virgin H2296 [H8803] girded H8242 with sackcloth H1167 for the husband H5271 of her youth.
9 H4503 The meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H3772 [H8717] is cut off H1004 from the house H3068 of the LORD H3548 ; the priests H3068 , the LORD'S H8334 [H8764] ministers H56 [H8804] , mourn.
10 H7704 The field H7703 [H8795] is wasted H127 , the land H56 [H8804] mourneth H1715 ; for the grain H7703 [H8795] is wasted H8492 : the new wine H3001 [H8689] is dried up H3323 , the oil H535 [H8797] languisheth.
11 H3001 [H8685] Be ye ashamed H406 , O ye farmers H3213 [H8685] ; wail H3755 , O ye vinedressers H2406 , for the wheat H8184 and for the barley H7105 ; because the harvest H7704 of the field H6 [H8804] hath perished.
12 H1612 The vine H3001 [H8689] is dried up H8384 , and the fig tree H535 [H8797] languisheth H7416 ; the pomegranate H8558 tree, the palm tree H8598 also, and the apple tree H6086 , even all the trees H7704 of the field H3001 [H8804] , are withered H8342 : because joy H3001 [H8689] is withered away H1121 from the sons H120 of men.
13 H2296 [H8798] Gird H5594 [H8798] yourselves, and lament H3548 , ye priests H3213 [H8685] : wail H8334 [H8764] , ye ministers H4196 of the altar H935 [H8798] : come H3885 [H8798] , lie all night H8242 in sackcloth H8334 [H8764] , ye ministers H430 of my God H4503 : for the meat offering H5262 and the drink offering H4513 [H8738] is withheld H1004 from the house H430 of your God.
14 H6942 [H8761] Sanctify H6685 ye a fast H7121 [H8798] , call H6116 a solemn assembly H622 [H8798] , gather H2205 the elders H3427 [H8802] and all the inhabitants H776 of the land H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H2199 [H8798] , and cry H3068 to the LORD,
15 H162 Alas H3117 for the day H3117 ! for the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is at hand H7701 , and as a destruction H7706 from the Almighty H935 [H8799] shall it come.
16 H400 Is not the food H3772 [H8738] cut off H5869 before our eyes H8057 , and joy H1524 and gladness H1004 from the house H430 of our God?
17 H6507 The seed H5685 [H8804] hath perished H4053 under their clods H214 , the storehouses H8074 [H8738] are laid desolate H4460 , the barns H2040 [H8738] are broken down H1715 ; for the grain H3001 [H8689] is withered.
18 H929 How do the beasts H584 [H8737] groan H5739 ! the herds H1241 of cattle H943 [H8738] are perplexed H4829 , because they have no pasture H5739 ; yea, the flocks H6629 of sheep H816 [H8738] are made desolate.
19 H3068 O LORD H7121 [H8799] , to thee will I cry H784 : for the fire H398 [H8804] hath devoured H4999 the pastures H4057 of the wilderness H3852 , and the flame H3857 [H8765] hath burned H6086 all the trees H7704 of the field.
